For your info, it's useful to know that most of the cPanel-based Hosting offers on the current hosting marketplace are furnished by a very small business niche (when it comes to yearly money flow) known as a hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a kind of a small-size business niche, which provides a vast number of different web hosting brand names, yet furnishing the same services: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because at least 98% of the web hosting offerings on the whole website hosting market supply strictly the same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel Hosting price tags are identical. Very identical. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service practically no other website hosting platform/website hosting CP option. Thus, there is only one fact: out of more than 200k web hosting trademarks globally, the non-cPanel-based ones are less than two percent!

200k "Hosting service providers", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely branded

The Hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offers" Google shows to us boil down to just one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different website hosting brand names. Imagine you are only a normal chap who's not well aware of (as most of us) the web page development processes and the web hosting platforms that power the various domains and online portals. Are you ready to make your hosting pick? Is there any website hosting variant you can decide upon? Sure there is; there are more than 200,000 web hosting service providers out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? More than ninety-eight percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique website hosting brands will offer you strictly the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, named differently, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how big the assortment on the present-day web hosting marketplace is.

The Hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple mathematics shows that to run into a non-cPanel-based web hosting supplier is a great stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will happen! Less than one in fifty.

The positive and negative aspects of the cPanel-based Hosting solution

Let's not be pitiless with cPanel. After all, from 2001-to 2004, cPanel was modern and perhaps satisfied most web hosting market prerequisites. To put it briefly, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains.

Negative Aspect No.1: A dumb domain name folder structure

If you have two or more domains, be very watchful not to erase the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are very simple to erase on the server because they all are situated in the root folder of the default domain name, which is the well-known public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to delete the files of the add-on domains, please. Verify for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain name folder arrangement is: public_html (here is situated) public_html/my-family (a folder part of public_html/ (an add-on domain name) public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of public_html/ (an add-on domain name) public_html/ (an add-on domain name) public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of public_html/ (an add-on domain) public_html/rebeka (a folder part of public_html/ (a sub-domain of an add-on domain) Are you getting nonplussed? We categorically are!

Negative Aspect No.2: The very same mail folder structure

The mail folder arrangement on the server is the same as that of the domain names. Making the same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin blokes strongly reinforce their belief in God when dealing with the email folders on the email server, hoping not to bungle things up too badly.

Negative Sign No.3: An utter lack of domain name administration sections

Do we have to mention the entire deficiency of a contemporary domain management GUI - a place where you can: register/move/renew/park or administer domains, modify domain names' Whois details, shield the Whois information, change/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not have such a "modern" section at all. That's an enormous drawback. An unforgettable one, we want to point out.

Weak Point No.4: Numerous user login locations (minimum 2, maximum three)

Besides the cPanel user account login credentials you've already supplied by the cPanel Hosting provider. What about the need for another login to use the invoicing, domain, and tech support management interface? Now and then, based on the billing platform (specially developed for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel Hosting vendor is making use of, the zealous clients can end up with two different login locations (1: the invoice transaction/domain name administration menu; 2: the ticket support menu), winding up with an aggregate of 3 user login locations (counting cPanel).

Disadvantage Number 5: 120+ website hosting Control Panel sections to get familiar with... fast

cPanel presents more than one hundred and twenty areas inside the website hosting CP for your consideration. It's a terrific idea to grasp each of them. And you'd better get familiar with them briskly. That's way too insolent on cPanel's side. With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel Hosting firms: As far as we are aware, it's not the year 2001. Note that one too.
